Tuscan Sausage And Spinach Tortellini Soup

Monday, February 8, 2021
This is a rich Tuscan style soup made with Tortellini, Sausage, and Spinach and made in minutes.

The soup is made quickly with chicken broth, spice, and fresh ingredients that take just around 25 minutes to prepare.

The sausage and boiling the pasta are what takes the longest everything else will cook quickly.

The tortellini and sausage make a delicious addition to chicken broth and the fresh wilted spinach adds just the right flavors to compliment them both.

If you love tortellini pasta try our Homemade Tortellini Pasta and our Caprese Tortellini Salad which are two family favorites.

Delicious Broth

I have made this soup so many different ways using both loose and Italian hot or mild sausage, leftover chicken or turkey breast cubed.

This soup is very versatile so you can pretty much use whatever you have on hand except for the spinach or other greens you prefer in it.

Sausage is our favorite in this soup because of the spiciness it gives and balances perfectly with the tortellini pasta.

If you start out with any other raw meat, just use the same directions as you would cooking the sausage first.

Either way, the soup will be amazing!
